editor's review




Portable Speed Reader Enhanced is a software tool that can be used in order to help individuals read faster and open TXT files from the hard drive.

Portability perks

This is the portable counterpart of Speed Reader Enhanced, which means that the installation process can be easily skipped. As a result, the Windows registry and Start menu/screen are not going to suffer any changes, and no traces will remain after its removal from the hard drive.

Another important aspect is that you can place the program files to an external data device, such as a USB flash drive, so as to run Portable Speed Reader Enhanced on any PC you have been granted access to.

Parameters to tinker with

You are met with a simple working environment, which enables you to access all available options and configure settings with great ease. You can upload TXT documents only with the help of the built-in file browser, as the “drag and drop” function is not integrated.

The reader can be placed on the entire screen, so that you can solely focus on the task at hand, and you can pause this operation at any point, by simply pressing the Space bar.

From the settings panel it is possible to control the number of words per minute displayed, combine threshold and back track amount. Moreover, it is possible to establish the number of seconds a single word stays on the screen, start the speed reader in full screen mode, as well as keep it on top of all other launched programs.

Bottom line

In conclusion, Portable Speed Reader Enhanced is a pretty decent piece of software, when it comes to helping people increase their reading speed. The response time is good, the system’s resources are not affected and it can be used by anybody. Nevertheless, it lacks some of the options other similar products encompass.
